While I might believe in some of the teachings of Christ (most specifically, the way slaves should be treated by their masters - I'm all into that whole master/slave thing), I don't believe that Christ was divine. He might have been Divine, but not divine.
However, here in the land of more Godly than thou art -
Presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee is saying some pretty outrageous things, and I'm not sure the mainstream media is picking up on any of it (yet). Like how it's easier to change the Constitution than the word of God, so let's make the Constitution more in line with the word of God, rather than making it fit with some contemporary ideas about morality and justice.
Other presidential hopeful (and part-time underwear model) Mitt Romney says "no freedom without religion." And here I thought I could be free from religion if I so choose.
Barack Hussein Obama (yes, that's an Arabic name in the middle) is having his history/ upbringing/ color/ authenticity/ hygiene/ articulatedness/ hairstyle (oops, sorry - that's John Edwards) questioned by everyone, including his (current) chief rival for the Democratic nomination, Hillary (& Bill) Clinton. He is being smeared (through a variety of tortured arguments) over whether or not he's got Islam in his heritage, but now he's a Christian, so he might be apostate in the eyes of Muslims, and is he only a Half-rican? I'm beginning to think I'd vote for him out of spite, which is a rotten way to choose any candidate (unless you're a Repugnican).
Hillary (& Bill) Clinton is doing the "I've done more for the African-American cause than you have" mambo, roping in a variety of African-Americans to help out, like Tyra Banks. Always good to have the supermodel vote on your side. She's done more for them probably because she's OLDER than Obama. And not that not being black has anything to do with working for the African-American community, but I'm sure it would give you a certain perspective. Oh, AND she can cry, proving her humanity. Or that she has a good sprinkler system. As far as how long she's been working for the African-American community, didn't she start her political career as a Goldwater Girl? And didn't Barry Goldwater originate the Southern Strategy? So, in the beginning of her career, Hillary (& Bill) Clinton was part of the whole "scare the Southerners into voting Republican because otherwise they'll have to sit next to black people."
Since when are Democrats the party of my skin is darker/ my gender is more caring/ YOU SUCK! politics? Can't we all just get along?
Enough with the Bush / Clinton / Bush / Clinton / Bush routine. I want someone with a different name, and preferably someone who hasn't been politicking since I was seven.
